  1. 1. When you installing AGP card, please make sure the followingnotice is fully understood and practiced. If your AGP card has "AGP4X notch"(show below), please make sure your AGP card is AGP 4X(1.5V).Do not use AGP 2X card (3.3V) in this motherboard. It will burn anddamage the motherboard due to Intel® 845(E/G) / 850(E) chipsetcant support AGP 2X(3.3V).Example 1: Diamond Vipper V770 golden finger is compatible with 2X/4Xmode AGP slot. It can be switched between AGP 2X(3.3V) or 4X (1.5V)mode by adjusting the jumper. The factory default for this card is 2X (3.3V).If you install this card in GA-8IR2003 (or any AGP 4X only) motherboardswithout switching the jumper to 4X mode (1.5V), it will burn the motherboard.Example 2: Some ATi Rage 128 Pro graphics cards made by "Power Color",the graphics card manufacturer & some SiS 305 cards, their golden finger iscompatible with 2X/4X mode AGP slot, but they support 2X(3.3V) only. If youinstall this card in GA-8IR2003 (or any AGP 4X only) motherboards, it willburn the motherboard.Note : Although Gigabytes AG32S(G) graphics card is based on ATi Rage128 Pro chip, the design of AG32S(G) is compliance with AGP 4X (1.5V)specification. Therefore, AG32S(G) will work fine with Intel® 845(E/G) /850(E) based motherboards.

Computer motherboards and expansion cards contain very delicate Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To protect them against damage from static electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you work on your computer. 1. Unplug your computer when working on the inside. 2. Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal object, such as the power supply case. 3. Hold components by the edges and try not touch the IC chips, leads or connectors, or other components. 4. Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the components whenever the components are separated from the system. 5. Ensure that the ATX power supply is switched off before you plug in or remove the ATX power connector on the motherboard. Installing the motherboard to the chassis... If the motherboard has mounting holes, but they dont line up with the holes on the base and there are no slots to attach the spacers, do not become alarmed you can still attach the spacers to the mounting holes. Just cut the bottom portion of the spacers (the spacer may be a little hard to cut off, so be careful of your hands). In this way you can still attach the motherboard to the base without worrying about short circuits. Sometimes you may need to use the plastic springs to isolate the screw from the motherboard PCB surface, because the circuit wire may be near by the hole. Be careful, dont let the screw contact any printed circuit write or parts on the PCB that are near the fixing hole, otherwise it may damage the board or cause board malfunctioning.

  14. 14. Step 1-2: CPU Heat Sink InstallationEnglish 1. Hook one end of the cooler bracket 2. Hook the other end of the cooler to the CPU socket first. bracket to the CPU socket. Please use Intel approved cooling fan. We recommend you to apply the thermal tape to provide better heat conduction between your CPU and heatsink. (The CPU cooling fan might stick to the CPU due to the hardening of the thermal paste. During this condition if you try to remove the cooling fan, you might pull the processor out of the CPU socket alone with the cooling fan, and might damage the processor. To avoid this from happening, we suggest you to either use thermal tape instead of thermal paste, or remove the cooling fan with extreme caution.) Make sure the CPU fan power cable is plugged in to the CPU fan connector, this completes the installation. Please refer to CPU heat sink users manual for more detail installation procedure.

  15. 15. Step 2: Install memory modules EnglishThe motherboard has 3 dual inline memory module (DIMM) sockets, but it can only support a maximumof 4 banks of DDR memory. DDR slot 1 uses 2 banks, DDR slot 2 & 3 share the remaining 2 banks.Please refer to the following tables for possible memory configurations supported. The BIOS willautomatically detects memory type and size. To install the memory module, just push it vertically into theDIMM socket. The DIMM module can only fit in one direction due to the notch.

  16. 16. English DDR 1. The DIMM socket has a notch, so the DIMM memory module can only fit in one direction. 2. Insert the DIMM memory module vertically into the DIMM socket. Then push it down. 3. Close the plastic clip at both edges of the DIMM sockets to lock the DIMM module. Reverse the installation steps when you wish to remove the DIMM module. DDR Introduction Established on the existing SDRAM industry infrastructure, DDR (Double Data Rate) memory is a high performance and cost-effective solution that allows easy adoption for memory vendors, OEMs and system integrators. DDR memory is a sensible evolutionary solution for the PC industry that builds on the existing SDRAM infrastructure, yet makes awesome advances in solving the system performance bottleneck by doubling the memory bandwidth. DDR SDRAM will offer a superior solution and migration path from existing SDRAM designs due to its availability, pricing and overall market support. PC2100 DDR memory (DDR266) doubles the data rate through reading and writing at both the rising and falling edge of the clock, achieving data bandwidth 2X greater than PC133 when running with the same DRAM clock frequency. With peak bandwidth of 2.664GB per second, DDR memory enables system OEMs to build high performance and low latency DRAM subsystems that are suitable for servers, workstations, high- end PCs and value desktop SMA systems. With a core voltage of only 2.5 Volts compared to conventional SDRAMs 3.3 volts, DDR memory is a compelling solution for small form factor desktops and notebook applications. Please note that the DIMM module can only fit in one direction due to the one notch. Wrong orientation will cause improper installation. Please change the insert orientation.

Be sure the metal contacts on the card are indeed seated in the slot.5. Replace the screw to secure the slot bracket of the expansion card.6. Replace your computers chassis cover.7. Power on the computer, if necessary, setup BIOS utility of expansion card from BIOS.8. Install related driver from the operating system. Please carefully pull out the small white-drawable bar at the end of the AGP slot when you try to install / uninstall the AGP card. Please align the AGP Card AGP card to the onboard AGP slot and press firmly down on the slot. Make sure your AGP card is locked by the small white-drawable bar. When an AGP 2X (3.3V) card is installed the 2X_DET will light up, indicating a non-supported graphics card is inserted.
